Join Forest & Ocean Gallery for reception Saturday featuring Master Photographer Ning Dhou 

Tomorrow, Saturday, March 30 from 5 - 8 p.m., Forest & Ocean Gallery invites the community to a reception featuring Master Photographer Ning Dhou.

Born in Nanjing, China in 1963, Ning Zhou developed a passion for photography as a young boy. Out of necessity, he learned how to economize on film by pre-visualizing his photographs, a skill he honed to an extraordinary degree.

Even today, despite the advent of digital photography and with more than 40 years’ experience, this unique ability is the touchstone of his distinct style. He waits patiently until every variable, setting, and condition are accounted for and assimilated in his mind so that he can see them like a camera. Then and only then does he press the shutter.

Ning Zhou’s art opens our eyes to the beauty around us while focusing our minds inward.
